DENVER -- Denver city council members are looking at a zoning change to better manage the city's growth.

More than 14 new developments, from I-70 to Brighton Blvd. to the Old Gates Rubber Plant on South Broadway, are coming soon to booming Denver.
Well, Denver's growing and this is a good thing, no?
Quote:
"And this isn't the entirety of them," explained City Councilwoman At-Large Debbie Ortega. The over 500 acres of undeveloped land is all scheduled to go vertical, which will add more people and more cars to Denver's already jam-packed streets.

"Crossing over Broadway, Santa Fe, using Alameda, is a nightmare now and it's only going to get worse because there's no place to expand those roads," said neighbor Scott Bolt, who ran the Ruby-Hill-Godsman Neighborhood Association for nearly a decade.
Here it comes, the DCC brigade.
Quote:
Ortega said she believes it's time to take a pause... "it is irresponsible to continue to approve massive rezoning without a hard look at the cumulative impacts."
A zoning change, eh?
Quote:
Ortega wants to change what developers have to bring to the table in order to get a project rezoned through council.

While you would think a developer would have to do a traffic study before adding hundreds of units on a one-way street, or bring a rendering of the project and general idea of the number of parking spaces, Ortega said that's no longer the case following a zoning change in 2010.

"Under the form-based zoning we get none of that," she said. Ortega is now looking at a zoning change to make some of that criteria mandatory in an effort to give council a clearer picture of a project before it gets approved.
This sounds serious?
Quote:
"If we're not thoughtful and intentional, we have the potential to lose what is great about Denver," said Ortega.

Ortega said the ordinance is still in the very early stages, and she wants to bring attention to the magnitude of proposed developments that have the potential to forever change the city.

Few interesting morsels.

Go Gig:

aka, no unemployment insurance.

no wonder the phony unemployment rate is so "low".

i guess as long as jerome keeps propping up the stock market is is well, eh?

Phony or not, it's been calculated the same way for decades so it has relative and historical value for comparison.

It's not just our Fed, it's also what other global central banks do that's collectively important. In any case using the Fed as an excuse for not making any return doesn't accomplish anything.

I'm familiar with all the negative talking points that have been out there since say 2011. Guess which bets have paid off in spades since that point in time? The market may go up another 20% before it drops 12% but by god you'll hear them barking for being right.... finally. If they were at least clairvoyant enough to go all-in at the precise bottom they'd do well enough - but they won't because they're always thinking the market will go even lower or that any rise is just a dead-cat bounce so they'll miss the next big leg up.

I wouldn't personally know what or how to use unemployment insurance but I've heard it's not a good substitute for a real job. A gig job can serve as a nice bridge for many until they find what they like; better than sitting at home watching the tee vee.

There's two downsides to gig jobs. Nothing is guaranteed; you actually have to get out and work. Some people thrive and love the work for various reasons but nobody is forced into gig jobs.

I am aware that Colorado is ranked low for costs to businesses at 43rd while Arizona, for example, is rated high with 6th lowest costs. Is it possible that Colorado is making it too easy or comfortable for too many to just live off of unemployment payments?

But the Denver Urban Renewal Authority wanted to incentivize redevelopment in this area once the medical school moved out. Thanks again! It is just crazy to see something this large that we have not even really chatted about on here. Hopefully the Gates District and Santa Fe Yards get going because that will be a much more transit connected master planned development. Although I understand that Santa Fe Yards is trying to find an anchor tenant for 1 million square feet of office space. That might be challenging.
A random spot? Really? This is an amazing spot for this development and Central Denver is in huge demand. It's a stone's throw from downtown and CCN. Pre-War fully-built neighborhoods surrounding. Complete neighborhoods. Not some brown field site in the middle of nowhere like 41/Fox. There's already a grocer on site for crying out loud!
